So far, the general answer to this is actually to get people to change
their libraries.  I'm aware of a few packages that actually made changes
like this to avoid depending on case sensitivity.  There are enough
windows users to get people to change their packages.

Perl used to have a 'makefile' and a 'Makefile' during build, but it has
since been changed.

This is minor.  What's real annoying is to get a library from someone on
a case-ignoring filesystem that will have


And then, sprinkled through the code:

  #include "myheaderfile.h"
  #include "MyHeaderFile.h"
  #include "MyHeaderfile.h"
